Founded in 1998, Arcadia owns high street brands including Topshop, Burton, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins. Sales at the London group, which operates 2,600 stores globally, fell 6% to £1.9bn in 2017 amid challenging conditions for retailers. Last July, Arcadia founder Sir Philip Green, 66, appointed Baroness Karren Brady, 49, the company’s new chairman.
